Wee Nam Kee: The Best Chicken Rice in Manila


here’s no other way to say it but the Chicken Rice shops we have in Manila are shit.  Now I don’t claim to be an expert of boiling chicken and steaming rice, but you don’t have to be a genius to know the good ones from the bad.  Chicken Rice is NOT the national dish of Singapore.  It is, however, ...

Is It Better Over at Shanghai Hand-Pulled Noodles?


love noodles.  I’m not sure if it’s just the Chinese in me or if it’s the simplicity of it, but I’m guessing it’s a bit of both.  This is precisely why Kanzhu‘s become one of my go-to places whenever I work late, whenever I having nothing to eat at home, or when I just need a quickie.  That’s what she ...

Eat Fresh: Famous Hong Kong Street Food


‘ll say this right off the bat: you’d have to be an idiot to not like this place.  Unless you’re from Hong Kong, you have no right to say, “This is some fucked up shit they serve here.” They pretty much serve more-than-edible Chinese food at incredibly reasonable prices — plus they open until late at night! People usually get ... Read More »

Kim Po Teahouse: Sparerib Rice Galore


f you attended my old high school , one tradition (for lack of a better term) is really to have walked from the school all the way to Greenhills Shopping Center, when it was still called Virra Mall.  It was about a 2km. walk and the best place to chow then was Le Ching.  More specifically, sparerib rice.  Even today, ...

Li Garden Sharks Fin Seafood Restaurant


urns out that the day wasn’t so bad after all.  But it gets even better.  My uncle read about this promo about a new Chinese restaurant along Macapagal Ave. and we heard it was actually pretty good.  Now if there are a bunch of harsher food critics (especially of Chinese food), it would definitely be my family on my mother’s ...

Dimsum Feast at Xin Tian Di


imsum is one of the greatest things in this world.  Seriously. It’s Chinese tapas, or maybe tapas should be called the Spanish dimsum.  Small bites you can have anytime of the day.  And even if they are steamed, they don’t suck. Dimsum is traditionally a light, tea-time meal.  But with my cousins coming from all over, we decided for a ... Read More »

Shi Lin: Another One Bites the Dust


ver notice that the Philippines is a trending type of country, especially in the restaurant business?  I mean look at the pearl shake phase where you had Zagu being commercially successful, then all those pearl shake stalls mushroomed about the Metro.  Then this milk tea craze started with the Serenitea’s that have ushered in stores such as Happy Lemon and ...

Kanzhu Hand-Pulled Noodles: It’s All About the Noodle


great piece of carb can really be as sexy as a great slab of meat.  Fresh, pure, firm. Well, you get the picture. But the point is, a really high quality carb, whether it’s a noodle, spaghetti, rice, or a risotto, can really make or break a dish.  It’s a dish in itself regardless of the sauce or topping. So ...

You Jie Xiao Chao: The Secret Resto in Rockwell


here’s this secret restaurant near Rockwell and I’ve been hearing it for quite some time now.  No name, no signage, just “Secret Resto.”  Sounds interesting and even serves Hunan cuisine.  The unlimited rice (for about 25 bucks), which I found out about later, is just a bonus. Officially, the place has a name: You Jie Xiao Chao, which translates to ... Read More »
